I have been working at American Red Cross full-time

Pros

The mission of the organization is fantastic. They do so much to help others and help save lives that you really feel good abut what you do on a day to day basis. There are also some very good people to work with.

Cons

The organization is going through some changes and there have not been a lot of opportunities to advance. They need to change from a culture of reducing to one of building in order for staff to feel safe and appreciated.

    I have been working at American Red Cross full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    It is so gratifying working for a company that has a mission to help people. I work in the blood services sector, and while it is highly regulated, hearing the stories of the lives that have positively affected and changed as a result of receiving the blood products helps drive what I do. Salary is competitive and the health benefits are very good in comparison with some other companies.

    Cons

    Due to financial concerns the company is consistently downsizing, so there is a concern with job security right now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more proactive to regulatory requirements & quality standards rather than reactive to FDA observations.
